that the massachusetts connector, who is run by the same guy who was running connecticut's exchange in the first month only so 0.3% of total enrollment sign-up. so, i have confident that the rocket will fly off the shelves once people can get into the website -- this product will fly off of the sale -- shelves once people can get into the website because what we have seen in connecticut and also i am optimistic that once his site is up it will be up in time for the largest number of people to inoll, because what you said response to senator bennet's questions, the reality is that the vast majority of people are going to be looking for coverage as the enrollment date draws near. so, i guess that is the frame of my question to you. from the experience of people who have been able to access these exchanges -- either at the national level or state level -- what do we know about the quality of the product and, two, what do we know about the timing of when people actually sign up for plans like this? we have the massachusetts experience, the experience of medicare part d. to the extent your timeline plays o

is now back on the job serving and protecting the people of springfield, massachusetts. i'm also pleased to say nevada law also includes robust protections against this type of discrimination. officer carney testified before the house of representatives in 2007 and shared his story. mr. president, this is what he said: "i'm god cop. i've lost two and a half years of employment, fighting to get that job back because i'm gay. i never would have been able to do that had i not lived in massachusetts or in one of the handful of other states that protect employees from discrimination. sadly you mr. president, not everyone is able to fight back like officer carney. in 33 states, lesbian, gay yo cn be fired or harassed just for being who they are. sam hall was terrorized by his coworkers for seven years because he was gay. mr. hall just wanted to make a living. but supervisors told him he would have to endure the persecution if he wanted to keep his job. west virginia is one of 33 states with no protections against this type of discrimination. that's why, mr. president, i so admire joe manchin f
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman.

rally up in massachusetts, the state made famous for his so-called romney care which was used as a blueprint to the affordable care act of the president's. the president is at war with republican who is have made it their sole mission these days and years to destroy the health care law. while the aca has certainly seen its share of glitches or problems, the gop has gone to great lengths to magnify and in many cases distort the issues. look at the latest headline in today's los angeles times. quote, another obama care horror story debunked. gwen moore a democrat from washington and jonathan gruber an m.i.t. professor in economics. he also served as an adviser to the white house and to congress on the president's health care plan. congresswoman, i want to start with you. i think somebody from mars would watch the congress these days and say what are those people so angry about? fighting like mad from the republican side with all this anguish and frightening anger. and i get the feeling it's not about whether the program is working or not. what they are angry about the democrats

, massachusetts. caller: good morning. i was born on march 21, 1960, so at the time i would have been a little over three and a half years old. i always remember, my first congress in memory that i ever had was being in the kitchen of our third-floor apartment and my mother crying. i remember asking her, you know, what was wrong, why was she crying, and she came out and said that it bad man or someone had shot the president. to this day i would give a million dollars to remember the questions i am sure i probably asked her as any three and a half-year-old would. she was a strong woman and really did not cry that often, but i remember to this day her crying and that really affected her like i guess they did the rest of the nation. every time i hear of the assassination, i always think that that was the first thing that i really remember happening in my life, my mother, how hard she took it that day. that is all i have to say. thank you. host: thank you for the call. i want to go back to one of the iconic photographs, november 22, the open air motorcade with the president and first lady. in fron
small business, another small business wants a $20 co-pay. so we know that from the massachusetts connector experience in small group market and we know that based on the commercial side of the market. and i have a private board that made many of these decisions with a lot of input from policy stakeholder workgroups. so we decided early on that we wanted, that we didn't want to limit products. we wanted carriers to be as innovative as they wanted to be. the one early decision that we made, which was unanimously recommended by all stakeholders including consumer groups, providers and carriers was that we would not allow benefits substitutions to the central health benefits package. and so that products could have additional benefits like acupuncture as an example, if not one of the core benefits. so the variation in product is really additional benefits on top of the essential health benefits benchmarked and the variation in your out of pocket liability. so the co-pay, coinsurance, et cetera. >> thank you. spent thank you. i also work in coalition with many asian-american organizat
massachusetts. so is the president being up staged by all of this criticism? >> no, i think this is sour grapes. another example of republicans overplaying their hand when romney had a very similar plap imp lechlt implemented in massachusetts. most of the people went on to the medicaid program. it's very simple what's happening at the federal level. keep in mind, it does not affect 80% of americans. another 30% through medicaid or through the military: only 20% of americans don't have insurance or get their snurnsz in the individual markets. that's the 20% that would be eligible. that's a pool of approximately 60 million people. what they need to get these exchanges to work is prrksly 7 million participating. all of the analysis shows certainly for the uninsured this is going to be a far bet eer deal right now, everyone for the 15 million. kaiser says they're going to get much, much better deals for most of them that premiums are lower. 47% of americans like obama care or wanted stronger. only a 35 wanted to go to the republican plan which is go back to the status quo before obama care. so i t

was the scott brown win in massachusetts and the special election. a lot of national attention to that money. and the center -- at the center of that race was obama care. hasn't passed yet. but scott brown was supposed to be the senator who could stop it. and then the 2010 election, republicans won and the wave in the house made some gains in the senate but weren't able to win some of the key races. and think about what republicans have lost since president obama was first elected in 2008. 2012, mitt romney lost that election. he explicitly did not run against obama care. did not run on health care. he was trying to get away from his record with romney care in massachusetts. so i think that republicans are looking at this from a political perspective, they've got to see -- they've got to see victory and criticizing obama care in going after and being aggressive on health care. but that's also going to require a plan of their own. something that there's a lot of things in the house, a few in the senate, that the republicans are throwing out there, good ideas, i think. but we need to have some
's called romney care. we did it here in massachusetts. it was a mandate to help people to buy health insurance. there was a speaker from a heritage foundation on the podium with him talking about what a wonderful plan this was. it only became the devil's work the day that president obama changed his position. i think he deserves a lot of credit for this. changed his position to say this has worked, i'm ready to try this. this was not his original position. this was after looking at the success in massachusetts. he said, you know what? here's a system that works. yes, it was originally a republican idea, but it works. let's do it. i heard this described as the most partisan/bipartisan law. and i think it's right. you only because it has president obama's name on it suddenly it's a problem. >> so we agree. the republicans have no plan for the country. >> they do not. >> thank you. some of the most ludicrous criticism of the president came from the high offices -- i'm being sarcastic -- of reince priebus. this is shawn spicer accusing the president of the united states of blocking. here

of a harborer of the country than massachusetts where mitt romney was governor. the point is resonant it's not a republican state. he doesn't have to worry about the same type of conservative base issues he'd find in a republican primary. but that's not his pitch. his pitch is do you want to win the white house or not? and the truth of the matter is his argument, i think, is there is an opening in the republican party for that. there are a lot of conservatives who are going to line up and compete for conservative votes. whether it's ted cruz or rand paul. but i do think that there will be a slot for a chris christie type. he did talk about that this -- in our interview today he said i think there are some republicans that are more interested in winning the argument than they are in winning an election, anderson. >> i think one of the things also about chris christie looking ahead to the base is, it wasn't just mitt romney. it was also bob dole at the end of his second term. it was also george w. bush that the tea party said, these guys, we've tried too many times. but in the end it's abo

that republicans have one. first was scott brown in massachusetts. there was a lot of national money there. at the center of that race was obamacare, which had not passed yet. it was -- scott brown was supposed to be the senator who could stop it. the wave in the house made gains in the senate but were not able to win those races. if you think about what republicans have lost since president obama was first , mitt romney12 explicitly did not run against obamacare or on health care. mostly because he was trying to get away from his record in massachusetts. republicans looking at this from a political perspective need to in criticizing obamacare and going after online health care, but it will also own,re a plan of their there are a lot of plans in the house and the senate that republicans are throwing out there, some good ideas, but there needs to be some leadership. someone who can take these ideas and say -- here is the republican vision for what health care should look like. it does not look like the old one and it certainly does not look like obamacare. this health care debate may stretc

in massachusetts, which is probably the most instructive one, only 0.3% of the people who ultimately enrolled did so in the first month. the vast majority did it right before the deadline and most of the young people did it before the deadline. i just don't want to panic when we're only 30 days, 40 days into enrollment. we've got plenty of time for this thing to work and ultimately given the fact that we know it's an affordable product, especially for young people to have subsidies, they're going to end up signing up. i think a lot of this is just a political cloud created by republicans who never wanted this thing to work in the first place. in the end, we've got a product that sells. we know that in connecticut. >> do you have a sense of when, depending on what the numbers are, you'll either panic or breathe a sigh of relief and say, see, it is working. >> i think we're not there yet. we need to get well into next year as we start to look at the numbers as we come towards march before any of us have a sense of whether the website has had a significant hangover. but the fact is, is that i think

. the chair recognizes the gentleman from massachusetts, mr. mcgovern. >> thing too, mr. chairman. i want to thank you and the ranking member as well as chairwoman stabenow. i too want to thank the staff for the many hours of work they have put into this effort. let me set the outside, like everyone else, i very much want a farm bill. i look forward to working with the members of this conference committee to try to achieve that goal. from massachusetts, there are many important parts of this farm bill that will impact my state and new england. the dairy conservation and especially cropped versions -- revisions are critical for the part of the country i represent. i strongly support full and robust dairy conservation and specialty crop provisions in the final conference report. i'm also pleased to see that both the house and senate included language to close the animal fighting spectator loophole. both bills would prohibit knowingly attending an animal fight or bringing a child to an animal fight. i urge my colleagues to support these provisions. i would like to spend my remaining time on

is working in massachusetts. it uses ideas out of the heritage foundation. the individual mandate was originated in the heritage foundation in 1989. ae republicans introduced similar legislation in 1992. you guys are complaining that this is a radical thing. it is filled with republican ideas and the other problem is, you guys have complained for four years and jumping up and down and complaining about how awful obamacare is. there is no republican alternative as far as i know. there is none that has been passed in the house. you don't have a comprehensive health care plan. the health care costs that we have in the united states have been rising and rising for the past 20 years. they are projected to continue to rise if there is no change. what is the republican alternative to the awful, harvell, terrible, ghastly obamacare which is really romneycare? guest: i think it's true that in the 1990s, there were conservatives who were trying to be proactive and look for ways to solve the healthcare problem. it is wrong to say that all republicans embrace this idea and rally around it bu
with the massachusetts board of pharmacy where the necc was located towkd to an array of compounding products. on october 25 of last year to explore the i.e.d. for legislation, the committee launched a bipartisan process to examine the respective state and federal roles in regulating compounding pharmacy. my oversight team worked with senator alexander's to gather documents from f.d.a. and the state of massachusetts that shed light upon how necc had been had been allowed to grow so large with so little oversight. last november we released an initial report and held a hearing exploring the statutory and regulatory gaps that contributed to this tragic. -- tragedy. our bipartisan investigation continued and culminated in a final report that was released may 22 of this year. over the course of this investigation we explored how drug compounding has evolved as an industry over the past couple of decades. now, drug compounding is a traditional and long-standing activity of pharmacies. it serves an important role in our health care system. compounding is when just a few people, maybe only one person needs a cer
the massachusetts program on which this was built which enrolled 123 people in its first month, about which all the same stuff, you know the employers will all drop, the ploy i don't see won't take it. the people will just pay the fine, it won't get to you. all of those things were said. every one of them by many of the same economists and massachusetts is basically working pretty well. we had an expansion to a prescription drug entitlement under president bush t. computers the donut. then it was a different argument. then it was republicans don't like new programs, so they don't make it work. that's why it's failing. it's a bit different as an argument. it was the same thing, growing pains. then it worked. i promise if you go back to when it was enstalled, you will find that there weren't any computers, but, you know, are they going to get the pastal system working? are they going to get the files created and keep track of people's payrolls? that doesn't mean this isn't jer e serious. but my bet is that this is not going to be a history books, 25 years from now t. fact that america joined the
was based on what was done in massachusetts. and the experience of massachusetts was that in the people signed53 up out of an ultimate 36,000. i mean, it was -- it was less than 1 percent signed up in that first month, partly because buying insurance is a complicated process for a lot of people. when they have more choices, it means that they're going to take more time. there's no doubt that we've lost some time, but the website's getting better each week. by the end of this month it will be functioning for the majority of people who are using it. they'll be able to shop, see what their choices are. the prices are good. the prices are not changing during the open enrollment period that goes out until march. and so i think that we're going to have time to catch up. what's also been expressed as a concern is the mix of people that sign up. so we might end up, you know, having millions of people sign up, they're happy with their new coverage, but we've got more people who are older, more likely to get sick than younger and healthier. we've got to monitor that carefully. we always anticipat
